Vintage Limoges Cat with Fish Trinket Box

Vintage Limoges Cat with Fish Trinket Box

$250.00

Limoges trinket boxes have a long and fashionable history dating all the way back to the mid-1700s. The small, hinged boxes were tiny, labor-intensive works of art made with impeccable craftsmanship and hand-painted in exquisite detail. These curious little artifacts have held a number of fashionable uses over the ages: under Louis XIV these small boxes were used to hold a lock of lady's hair or small poem, but were more commonly used as snuff boxes, and later as pill boxes or simply as decorative figurines. They are still sought after today for their romance, nostalgia, and fine beauty.

This charming cat trinket box is a lovely example of the whimsical joys of Limoges boxes. An adorable, mischevious cat is peering out from under the lid of a trash can with a tiny fish skeleton in its paw. Painted entirely by hand in France, this exceptional trinket box is finished with antique brass trim and a clasp in the form of a fish. Opening the box reveals a little hand-painted can of tuna.

Full of humorous whimsy, this very rare Limoges box is sure to be a beloved addition to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 2.25" x 1". In excellent vintage condition.
